Wondering about Participating in Clinical Trials?

Those participating in clinical trials must meet certain criteria, and, in addition to taking the drugs, are asked to complete questionnaires and submit blood work and other lab results for research purposes. As well as a commitment to the course of treatment, there is also a time commitment to complete all of the data collection required as a participant in the clinical trial.

For those considering participating in clinical trials, talk with a health care provider you trust about your options. Try to gather as much research as you can, and talk with other people who have also participated in clinical trials.
